This musical string quartet is absolutely the best! The quality of their musicianship is outstanding! Their repertoire is extensive and they are extremely professional and accommodating. They played all of the pieces we requested and in an order that flowed beautifully. We asked them to not only play during the ceremony but also during cocktails and throughout the dinner and I’m so glad that we did. It added so much to the entire experience and created the perfect atmosphere We could have listened to them all night. I’d love to be able to listen to them in concert some day! We feel so blessed to have had them play for us. I cannot recommend them highly enough!Sent on 10/27/2020

We knew we wanted the elegance of a string quartet at our wedding, but knew little beyond that about classical music. Diana helped us along the way with suggestions and samples and ideas for processional and recessional. The ceremony music was perfect and we couldn't be more in love with how everything worked out! The Quartet continued to play through cocktail hour, where they switched to more upbeat songs our guests recognized and loved! We received so many compliments and would highly recommend working with the Northern Virginia String Quartet!Sent on 09/19/2020

I originally reached out to the Quartet and then with their help they worked directly with the bride and groom. They provided wonderful pre wedding music and then they did a beautiful performance at the wedding. We also had them entertain during the cocktail hour. They are very flexible with their music and our guest really enjoyed them.Sent on 01/09/2020
We would definitely recommend the NOVA String Quartet.
I have officiated over 2,500 weddings in this region, and always have a smile when I see the String Quartet of Northern Virginia at a wedding. They are just as good as you can get. They plan a beautiful selection of music (you can occasionally get good musicians who play mediocre music for your guest ... but NOT this quartet!), played by accomplished musicians who will keep your guests feeling great and smiling themselves the whole time.
I have had the privilege of working with and attending performances of Stephanie Flack and/or the String Quartet of Northern Virginia on several occasions. What can I say? Their music is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Be ready to be absolutely swept away! In addition, Stephanie is wonderful to work with. She is responsive, attentive, professional, and notices the little details. I highly recommend Stephanie and the String Quartet of Northern Virginia for any wedding or event, and if I were getting married tomorrow, they would be my string quartet!
We worked with the String Quartet of Northern Virginia on a wedding at the Wardman Park Marriott over Labor Day weekend. I can't say enough great things about Stephanie and her team! They arrived on time, their music is beyond perfect, and were great at taking and giving cues to make the ceremony and cocktail hour a huge success! I can't wait for us to work together again on another wedding!
